Back at home, Whistlejacket and his wife have returned to their favourite tree. It's about 3 gardens down from ours and they like to sit in the top of it, whistling at any birds that get close. They'd disappeared for a couple of months (possibly to nest?) and we hadn't seen them very often, but they seem to be back this week. Whistlejacket has been up in the tree, whistling, quite a lot over the last three days. His wife turns up and sits with him in the evenings. Maybe she's staying with their young during the day? We took these pictures from our back door.
